Hey guys, I'm a 20 yr old female that recently started eating paleo (again). Right now I'm consuming approx. 1,200 calories per day; although, I'll admit, sometimes I consume closer to 1,000. I realize this is probably too little, but I'm... (more)

I've seen and tried all types of different ratios for macronutrients (protein,fat,carbs)such as 50/30/20, 25/35/40, but I always end up cheating, going carb crazy and eating non pale foods for the whole weekend. I have a serious issue with portion... (more)

A number of folks just dismissed what I had to say on this, assuming I had no familiarity with the Phinney/Volek work, that I was ???out to lunch??? on the topic. That???s certainly your right if you are in that camp, but you are a boner for... (more)

I just got through Jeff Volek and Stephen Finney's Art and Science of Low Carbohydrate Performance. It's worth the $6 Kindle price if you happen to have an e-reader: http://www.amazon.com/The-Art-Science-Carbohydrate-Performance/dp/0983490716 One... (more)
Just came across this supplement today while looking at a "Paleo" energy gel... I'm not that intersted in the energy gel itself (or whether it's Paleo or not), but rather the ingredient PEAK ATP. They market it as, "Peak ATP: Elevates APT levels... (more)

Eat more starchy carbs, ditch the nut butter and nuts or eat very minimally and make sure you get adequate calories. These tips should help. Buttering up your meat is a good way to increase cals.

I suppose this is aimed a little more at the CrossFitters out there. When I initially started CrossFit and eating Paleo, I went with the CFHQ recommendation of eating Zone proportions several times a day. While I did start to get lean, quickly, I... (more)
There have seen similar questions, but I wanted to focus on something pretty narrow. How do we figure out when we are out-thinking our bodies, and when we aren't? We add some things to natural foods, but we also don't want to interfere with the... (more)
Another low carb question.. I've been eating a pretty high-fat, low-carb diet on and off for a while now. I'm not sure if I'm really keto-adapted (I haven't had that weird metallic taste in my mouth for a while), but I know that carbs make me... (more)
